passionate minority. i was there from the start. i can remember marching, urging president bush to stop the war. i can still remember comforting anti-war activists like cindy sheehan. i met her near president bush's texas ranch. at camp casey. named for her son. he was killed in action in the war. from day one, i didn't agree with the invasion of iraq. but i always knew how important it was to support our troops. especially when they came home. the president talked about it in his state of the union. >> we will keep faith with our veterans. investing in world class care, including mental health care. for our wounded warriors. supporting our military families. giving our veterans the benefits and education and job opportunities that they have earned. >> over 1.1 million americans served in iraq, and over 32,000 returned home with severe combat wounds. it's a big reason why 45% of veterans from iraq and afghanistan are seeking disability assistant. it's a staggering number. the wait time for that help is even worse. on average, it's over 300 days for our newest veterans. our veter
/11. there were those in the bush administration who saw this as their opportunity. they were helped by war hawks on the outside. "the washington post" op-ed page. the weekly standard. the new republic were open billboards for the relentless push toward war. establishment media joining in offering uncritical coverage of the administration line. this is not a good statement about the american press. i'd like to believe my generation, especially those who grow up in maturity to the horror and dishonesty of vietnam would have spoken loudly against the war hawks. few, mostly on the left, did. fewer from the middle. still fewer from the right. what's worse than that in those months of late 2001, 2002, and early 2003, to oppose the war when there was time to stop it, worse yet, to question its motivation, was to cause trouble for yourself. even when a whole new vocabulary, wmd, homeland, regime change, freedom fries, coalition of the willing, was being confected and infiltrated into our national dialogue. the mainstream media was useless. even when the culture of the country i.t. itself, country music
couple of years? especially as you have folks like jeb bush and chris christie. trying to move the country to more moderate and progressive in the lower-case "p" sense of the word. >> in covering ron paul, who of course rand paul is going to inherit the energy and enthusiasm from ron paul, you saw the biggest crowds, the most diverse crowds and the youngest crowds. that's what rand paul is going to capitalize on. should he run and it looks like he will run. i think over the last months and weeks you've seen obviously a split between the establishment and the tea party folks. rubio can't decide which one he is. rand paul, however, is very, i think solid and comfortable with his brand and who he is. it's part of ron paul, he's modified a little bit in terms of foreign affairs and international affairs. but i think he is a comer and folks in the republican party i talk to really like him. they think he's the person who can really intellectualize a tea party in the way that ron paul couldn't. he was a little meandering on the stump. they like what they see in terms of rand paul. an
.s. launched a war in iraq. here's how george w. bush broke the news on march 19th, 2003. >> my fellow citizens, at this hour, american and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm iraq and free its people and defend the world from grave danger. >> within a month, baghdad had fallen, but the war dragged on. casualties spike in subsequent years and in early 2006, the bombing of a mosque led to a wave of sectarian violence. president obama vowed an exit strategy to fulfill a promise and ended the mission before christmas, 2011. richard engle was there. >> after invasion, a civil war and a surge and a training mission, for the first time, u.s. military command no longer has a presence here in iraq. this is now a sovereign nation. >> richard spent eight years in iraq. he is in another key part of the region in israel. he is waiting for president obama who arrives in jerusalem tomorrow morning. good morning. >> good to be with you. >> i want to ask you, we sit here ten years later and you spent a tremendous amount of time in that part of the world. what is our standi
all believed as a country was there. and then former bush speechwriter david frum wrote in "the daily beast" this week if the war achieves positive gains it is unnecessary costs in human life, money, to the prestige and credibility of the u.s. government are daunting and dismaying if we found the wmd it would have been different. it totally would have been different but we didn't. >> sure. right. >> so are the american people more likely to question the challenge of this country being capable and on a proper premise to go into war? >> absolutely. i mean, those poll numbers that you cited way back when, ten years ago, were reflective of what the american people were told by its government, by its president, its secretary of state, its secretary of defense. the case was made for going to war with iraq. you know, in a time of war the american people rally around the president. but as more information came out, as more facts and corrections of the record came out, the american people saw that they were in essence lied to about getting into a war, not one of necessity but one of choice. an
want to play a comment made earlier about mitt romney and former bush foreign adviser dan senor on "morning joe." >> i think what's striking about this trip, he's coming to israel without a plan. most american presidents who have shown up in israel, clinton went four times. >> right. >> bush went in 2008. they went in a moment that they were on the cusp of israeli -- >> and the president's coming to close a deal. >> ambassador, i'll have you hold that thought because i'm going to take you right now to the president who is being introduced. they are inside the residence there of shimon peres. let's take a listen to both gentlemen speak. >> president obama, it is a great privilege for me and for the people of israel to host you here in jerusalem. it was a real pleasure to sit with a true friend, very knowledgeable, unfortunately, and see that we can agree and discuss with you openly and freely. after the meeting we just had, i am with more confidence that your vision can be transformed the middle east. your vision is achievable. you arrived here already with an impressive record o
" comes right back. >> it was president bush's first trip ever to haiti. he said he and president clinton are in it for the long haul. >> our mission is to help fill the gaps of human needs. >> so far their fund-raising efforts added up to $37 million.

of will. simply the will of cheney, bush, and that team. they're going to do it from the first nfc meeting of the bush presidency. it was a matter of how to do it. find me a way to do this. and 9/11 provided that excuse. what's interesting is when you look at the whole chain of events, how many lies there were. this was not a question of them wandering about wmd. it was building a case they knew would would be hollow and figuring once it was successful, once the troops were in there and on the ground, no one would care about the rationale, the just cause, so to speak, for what gets us into iraq. ultimately it shows itself to be a lie that was cynical and one that was preordained and premeditated from the start of the administration. >> you know, i attribute it to something grander than even evidence, my experience with dealing with cheney over the years. brain soup. certain people tend to be doves, hawks, and sadistic about it. cheney strikes me as a guy who wants to rub out his enemies politic politically. any enemy. >> david first. >> what you see in the clip you showed from the showtime
is is the first step. and if packaging is partly the issue, former florida governor jeb bush pointed out, there's not a lot of love for gop policies, either. >> all too often, we're associated with being anti-everything. way too many people believe republicans are anti-immigrant, anti-woman, anti-science, anti-gay, anti-worker, and the list goes on and on and on. >> oh, it certainly does. and if that weren't enough, in what's perhaps the gop's biggest challenge, many republicans right now are anti-each other. case in point, keynote speaker an rising star, senator ted cruz. taking on party elder, john mccain. >> we did have a certain eminence greze of the republican party describe rand paul and me as wackobirds. if standing for liberty and standing for the constitution makes you a wackabird, count me a proud wackabird. >> everyone's favorite, rand paul, did win cpac straw poll, by the way. when it wasn't those two wackobirds, it was an angry bird, ann coulter, going after chris christie. >> cpac had to cut back on its speakers this year by about 300 pounds. >> stay classy, mrs. coulter. remember
of president bush's own party who broke ranks. former national security adviser wrote an article call ed "don't attack saddam." there were some republican lawmakers as well. >> we have to remember we have been allies of saddam hussein. we say we know he has certain things, well, we do because we helped provide for them. i mean, we were his ally. >> it's good to -- today is to remember the warnings of u.n. weapons inspector hans blitz. it's a day to acknowledge the admonitions of leaders like general anthony zeni. eric shen who was forced into retirement when he disagreed with the bush cheny strategy. if we are truly remembering what it was like ten years ago today, we can't forget the millions of voices who opposed this war and attempts made to margin liz them. if you were a public figure, it was not a wise time to speak out against the administration. actress jeanne was called an iraqi sympathizer. >> saddam must love you and i'm sure -- >> don't even try and do that -- i'm not a saddam hussein apoll gist -- i don't think he said is that great news. >> michael moore was booed off the stage f
face a runoff. had el is the favorite and has a strong candidate on the democratic side colbert bush, stephen colbert's sister. is that all correct, chris? >> you got it. if you ever didn't think american politics didn't believe in second chances, all you have to do is look at mark sanford. this is a guy when he left in 200, everyone, myself included, said that's it, maybe he'll show up on a reality show, but never coming back into politics. there's a two-week runoff with a guy names curtis bostics while elizabeth colbert bush will raise money, not just because of her famous brother, but she has the capacity to raise money and will run a real campaign, any rpg including one i would say named mark sanford probably has an edge. it's sort of the coastal part of south carolina, including hilton head and charleston. we could be looking at congressman mark sanford again. >>> amazing. here's a jump ball, pun intended, for either of you. the president before he left for the middle east did his brackets with espn's andy katz. his picks? >> kansas is going to win. i tell you that -- >> i knew
. this is where america is. i think what jeb bush, the clip you showed of jeb bush, shows what the dramatic problem is for the republican party. they can't be a party of intolerance when it comes to gay marriage, when it comes to immigration, when it comes to whether you believe in climate change or not. >> well, let me ask you both this quickly. my theory in some ways, it's sort of like gun control was in the '90s for democrats, which is there is -- there are plenty of people in the base of the democratic party who still believe gun control, but the leaders of the party did not talk aggressively about it. so there's going to be a part of the republican base in this december nbc "wall street journal" poll. 27% of republicans broadly favor it. so i don't want to oversell it. 27% favor same-sex marriage. there is going to be a part of your party, alex, that doesn't -- does not want to change principles. should your leadership, people running for president, should they, a., say, look, i support same-sex marriage. fact you can disagree. or should they not talk as much about it? >> i think i per
with george bush's head on the spike. >> i think people have too much time on their hands. could we start with the markets? are you kidding me? >> there is george bush. >> what is going on here? alex! put that down! >> they had to apologize for that. >> do you want people to watch this show? seriously. stupid. >> that's not juiceesus, it's s. people were into that in the bar. >> i'm going to move on. >> they were the only ones like in high school cheering for the devil. >> i'm going to try to move on and save you all from yourself. we begin with the markets. big repercussions this morning to a controversial plan by european leaders to partially fund a bailout of cyprus. today, cyprus parliament will hold an emergency vote to review the terms of a rescue package that targets individual savings accounts in exchange for billions of dollars of emergency crash and creditors impose onetime tax of 3% on all bank deposits under $130,000. >> going deep here. >> the tax could be closer to 10% on people who have over $640,000 in the bank. that's according to the "the wall street journal" this mornin
. but not every president going to israel in his first term, george bush didn't. this is great opportunity for the president to sync up with prime minister netanyahu on iran, sir yarks the critical issues of the region where israel is in the eye of the storm. he can also speak directly to the israeli people, via a speech to a bunch of university students. >> aaron david miller, you were a middle east negotiator in a number of white houses and state departments, republican and democratic. what, how much syncing up with prime minister netanyahu do you think is going to take place, realistically? >> it's smart politics, it's smart policy, too. obama has got the most dysfunctional relationship with any israeli prime minister in the history of the u.s./israeli relationship. now benjamin netanyahu bears an enormous amount of the responsibility for that. if this president doesn't want to be the president on whose watch iran gets a nuclear weapon and the two-state solution expires, he's simply going to have to figure out a way to work with netanyahu and the new government and that, that new start,
years. and it is just a colossal, strategic failure of the bush administration to know that we had almost 4,500 of america's best and brightest killed in action, over 32,000 wounded in action, and over 100,000 iraqis dead for an unnecessary war. and a war that should basically never have happened and also a war that we put our troops into harm's way, basically over a religious civil war without the amount of troops that the military generals asked for. >> what do you remember when you see this piece of news that we're reporting today? what do you remember back to the time when you were serving? >> i served in south central baghdad. it was a sunni and shia neighborhood. >> just the case today, according to what we understand now. >> exactly. and i'm still haunted by the fact that mean the of the guys i served with never made it home. to know that folks who are responsible have never been held accountable. whether that's public perception or otherwise is pretty disheartening. >> who needs to be held accountable? >> i think the architects of the war. addiction cheney, paul wolf wits,
and launch the effort far sooner than either bill clinton or george w. bush did in their administrations. then it fell flat quickly. what was interesting to hear what the president said when he arrived formally as to why he made this his first trip of his second term. >> across this region the winds of change bring both promise and peril. so i see this visit as an opportunity to reaffirm the unbreakable bond between our nations, to restate america's unwavering commitment to israel's security, and to speak directly to the people of israel and to your neighbors. >> and he's going to be going to ramallah meeting with the palestinian authority there, the head there, abbas in the west bank. he's meeting with jord ab's king abdullah on this trip with mubarak not in egypt anymore, the single most important arab leader in the peace process if something happens. now president perez, he spoke about the peace process after the president spoke. >> we long to see an end to the conflict with the palestinians, to see the palestinians enjoying fraed freedom and prosperity in their own state. we extend o
of the president's council of the economic advisers until president george w. bush. >> great to be here. >> and budget season no less. >> the thought in washington. >> you wrote it's like the super bowl for budget wonks and those who love them. >> just besides myself. >> i feel like we're going to have differing viewpoints here. >> shocking. >> i feel like you are not a fan of the murray budget, but whether or not you like it, she does offer both spending cuts and revenue. may not as much in spending cuts as republicans would like, but it seems like democrats are more open to compromise than republicans when it comes to the basic issue of spending and cuts. do you disagree with that? >> well, yeah, i will. i have to fill in my role. first let me throw numbers at you. >> exactly. the key here is you take the emotion out, take the disagreement, which is real, and just recognize the cbo put out its most recent projections of what happens if we go on autopilot, the magic gridlock and we don't fix anything. over 16 trillion in debt, and we just can't do that. i don't think there's any disagr
this week. it was a parade of former bush administration officials to say not only did they personally do nothing wrong but the iraq war turned out great, the right decision to liberate those people and how dare we try to second-guess them all these years later. i did not expect such bald revisionist history. and it makes me very happy we have decided to re-air our documentary on what they did wrong on the selling of that war tomorrow night. even though it has been ten years since the war was sold to the american public, the folks who did the selling, you know what, they did it all on tape, and the tape still exists. and now the people involved in those decisions are coming forward to talk about it, to say it didn't happen at all the way it really did. hubris airs 9:00 p.m. eastern tomorrow night, followed directly after by talking hubris, hosted by chris hayes. if you saw it the first time, check it out again. certainly check out the chris hayes' special after. now it's time for the last word with lawrence o'donnell. have a great night. >>> history was made in israel today, by the presid
made clinton, bush and obama ineligible for the presidency because of marijuana arrests. we'd have to reimagine president paul songis or president mario cuomo. now we're in kornacki land. those are not horrible options. what wants to choose a president from a list of guys who were young in the '60s and 7 os i'70 so stiff and frumpy they never tried it? arrests, for possession, not for sales, and for possession of marijuana, not harder drugs. why are we still conducting the war on drugs? criminalizing weed smokers, militarizing police and spending trillions to stop nothing. in the '70s, most criminalnolol experts concluded prison does not significantly deter crime and those with meaningful life opportunities were less likely to engage in crime regardless of the penalty, while those who went to prison were far more likely to commit crime in the future. prisons don't prevent crime. they create criminals. and america has the highest rate of incarceration in the world. what are we doing? happy monday. and now, my friend and yours, karen finney in for what's his name. don't tell me. don'
there is a affinity with this administration. in the bush years there was a lot of hard hitting stuff opposed to bush, especially after the iraq war went south. then they felt all guilty. they should have done x, y and z in the beginning. they were really tough. i think there really is a difference in how hard hitting the networks are depending on whether there is a conservative or a liberal in office. >> bill: i agree 100%. call them low information voters are becoming the majority in this country because there isn't information out there anymore. >> it's buried on the internet. >> bill: not on the internet. it's all skewed. you know, objective hard-hitting, uncovering things. if you don't know information, much rarer than it used to be. >> do you think the "times" or the post or the globe or 00 "l.a. times" 30 years ago was objective? what you had then was a liberal monopoly on the netted works, on the major papers, on the news magazines, on the colleges and universities. on hollywood. it was they had all called the commanding heights of the culture. the difference is is that now we have a few diss
, president george h.w. bush. then president bill clinton made up for that 12 years of neglect by visiting israel three times. and president george w. bush visited israel once in the last year of his presidency. so not every president visits israel, especially republican presidents, but modern presidential candidates do visit israel. barack obama actually first went to israel in 2006 when he was still an illinois senator. he went again in 2008 when he was running for president. you'll know chris christie is serious about running for president when he schedules a trip to israel. mitt romney went to israel last year in a desperate attempt to exploit a republican lie, that there was some kind of difference between president obama and it's really prime minister benjamin netanyahu about what the borders of israel should be. romney was aided and abetted in that lie by netanyahu, who is an old friend of romney's. they worked together 30 years ago at a boston consulting firm. as we reviewed last night, netanyahu left no room for doubt, he wanted mitt romney to be the next president of the united s
's documentary, "hubris: selling the iraq war" is on msnbc at 9:00. it details how the bush administration misled america into a costly, bitter, unnecessary war. >>> joining me now is chris hayes, host of "up with chris hayes." he'll be hosting a special program tonight at 10:00 p.m. they still change the rationale for the war. what is your reaction when you heard this talk this week? >> i found myself more outraged. i think i thought that i had gotten over how angry i was about what happened in iraq. but i think a lot of people are feeling how little the nation actually came to terms with what we did and how little the people who drove that have been punished or have been sanctioned, have been held to any kind of account. there was a midterm election which was a accountability moment on iraq and 2008 election which was in many ways a real referendum on iraq as well. but beyond that, beyond that, there has not been a level of disgrace or accountability for the people that made this war happen. the people that cheer leaded the war and hundreds of thousands of iraqis. that number -- >> hundreds and
long term, former florida governor jeb bush used his time at cpac to issue nothing but tough love for his party. >> all too often, we're associated with being anti-everything. way too many people believe republicans are anti-immigrant, anti-woman, anti-science, anti-gay, anti-worker, and the list goes on and on and on. >> meanwhile, in a saturday keynote, texas senator ted cruz pointed to sequester cuts and rand paul's filibuster to argue the conservatives are somehow winning now. and he took a swipe at senator john mccain. >> we did have a certain eminence grize of the republican party describe rand paul and me as wacko birds. >> we wondered whether senator rand paul could corral straw poll supporter. he clearly did. the libertarian senator scored with conservatives looking toward the 2016 race. winning the straw poll with 25% of the vote. very close second there. marco rubio at 23%. no other candidate, though, in double digits. for cycle after cycle, the republican party has been rewarding the next guy in line with their presidential nomination. but for the first time in a gener
chavez. that is not an exaggeration. imagine what would happen if bush turned around and nominated the grand kliegle of the ku klux klan to a cabinet position where he would be deciding on discrimination lawsuits. that is exactly what's happened here. >> that's incredibly offensive. and now we're hearing gop senators vowing to block the perez nomination. why? because perez is a champion for voting and minority rights? it was his office that fought to block vote are i.d. in texas. it was his office that fought to have voter i.d. blocked in south carolina. it was his office that sued nerve joe arpaio for discriminating against latinos. he's a fighter for civil rights and as lake secretary, he'll stand up for the rights of the working class. thanks for much whatting. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> reince priebus. what more can i say? let's play "hardball." >>> good evening, i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with that bridge being detonated down in texas. wow. that's what reince priebus, himself, is doing to the republican party. he talks about b
of choice nor a war of necessity as tim russert said. it was a war of will. simply the will of cheney, bush and the team. it was a matter of how to do it, find me a way to do this and 9/11 provided that excuse. what's interesting is when you look at the whole chain of events, is how many lies there were. this was not a question of them wondering about wmd. it is a question of building a case that they knew would be hollow and figuring out once they were successful and once the troops were in there and on the ground, no one would care about the rationale that just caused, so to speak for what gets us into iraq. ultimately, it shows itself to be a lie that was cynical and one that was pre-ordained and premeditated from the start of the administration. >> you know, i attribute it to something grander than evidence. it's my experience of dealing with cheney over the years. his brain soup. certain people are hawks and some people tend to be sadistic about it. sadistic. cheney strikes me as a guy who wants to rub out his enemies politically. any enemy. >> what you -- >> david first. >> what you s

marriage equality. that's up some 40 points from where it was in 2004, where president bush ran a whole campaign on defaming gay people and passing state initiatives -- >> bill: yeah, to put it in the constitution -- >> that was the strategy to win in those states bring his voters out, vote for him and of course on marriage equality. so those numbers are going up among all groups even conservatives now some 30%. when you see they started at some 14% in 2004 you see growth. you see growth in the 65-plus senior citizens. evangelicals were at about 7% in 2004, now they are in double digits. so support is growing. it's really remarkable and it has to do with what happened last week, at least in part with rob portman. this idea that as society becomes more accepting of gay people and gay people start coming out there is simply no choice for parents, for family members to embrace the people they love, to support who they are, to ensure that they have equality under the law that they can marry who they love just like their straight counterparts. >> bill: isn't there s
and former governor jeb bush for none other than hillary clinton in 2016. a quinnipiac university poll the other day found floridians would support the former secretary of state and first lady 52-42% over senator rubio and 51-40% over former governor bush. hmm. >>> overwhelming american support for gun background checks. so, why is that not translating into overwhelming support on capitol hill? i'll talk to congressman jim hines next. >>> and great balls of fire. just what was that light that so many folks saw in the sky last night? we will talk about that, too. you're watching msnbc, the place for poll ticks. we're taking downy to the streets. which shirt feels more expensive? that one's softer. it's the same t-shirt. really? this one was washed in downy. why spend a lot of money when you can just use downy? downy's putting our money where our soft is. try downy softness. love it or your money back. has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be heal
'm fascinated by is the doppelganger. laura bush a week or so ago was featured in a big ad, a group you support for marriage equali equality, she was listed as one of the four -- in the upper right side -- a major figure along with colin powell, an e dorser of marriage equality. later that afternoon around 5:00 eastern, she withdrew her name from it and said you can't use my image, which she can't -- it's a fact, so they can't say it wasn't true. i find this still a partisan issue. i find it something that's troubling for the republicans and a big plus for the democrats. i think they've really chosen sides. your thought on this issue of equality? >> i agree. i think this is a foundational issue that will divide the two parties. i think secretary clinton getting out there and doing this now makes it clear, i don't think there could be anybody running in the 16th primary who don't support marriage rights. it feels to me like that would be a really dangerous place to be. and so i think it's significant that chad says she reached out to him. this is really her first political act. now that she's al
were during the clinton years and once leaning over to the bush years and then they squandered that balance. so the reason we do that is our focus is on jobs, craig. our focus is on meeting our commitments to seniors. we will not balance the budget on the backs of our kids' education or on the backs of our commitments to seniors. whether it is under medicare or medicaid. what we do is immediately begin to reduce the deficit so they're growing much slower than the economy. which is the important measure. and then we gradually get the balance in the year round 2040. which by the way is the same year that the republican balance last year, the budget last year came into balance before they changed their priority. their priority now is balance at all costs. and our approach is focus on jobs in the economy and get the deficit down in a smart way. >> let's talk about the sequester for just a moment. what's the likelihood at this point that the sequester stays in place for the rest of the year? the fiscal year? >> well, it would be a big mistake for it to stay in place. that's why we p
